Ep. 165: Celebrity Unfriend Episode Video
All the news today was totally shocking: MySpace and Facebook having an announcement? Together? Stuxnet now the "biggest threat to industry" everywhere? National Unfriend day!? What!? Also, the scariest robot we've ever seen: Snakebot. Oh, and I have my own dirt track to nowhere in the UK. Suck on that, haters. --Molly
We have a fresh round of rumors about a Google phone; the PlayStation gets Facebook; and "unfriend" is now officially a word--a rude one at that!
Happy pi day! To celebrate, we're spending the entirety of today's 60-minute podcast episode reciting pi to the 10,000,000th digit.
Wilson's made a full recovery and is back on today's show, just in time to help us celebrate St. Patrick's Day! We're celebrating the best way we know how without actually drinking alcohol on the show--anyone else notice that Jeff looks eerily Irish today?
It's our 20th episode, which means we break out the expensive rose Champagne and celebrate in style. On today's show, we talk for a million minutes about the iPad 3, Google wants to sell the dumbest crap in its store, and we pull out our new segment, Analysts' Corner, just in time for Valentine's Day!
The first call made from the first mobile phone was made 40 years ago today, and to celebrate we're showing off our own cellular histories. Nextels, PDAs, and BitTorrent pirates on today's episode of The 404.
A hardy phone for anyone who works in electronics-unfriendly environments.
Verizon's launching its LTE network on Sunday, the FCC is proposing a plan for Net neutrality tomorrow, and Google is about to take over the world EVEN MORE with its e-book venture (we're sure the EU is going to love that). Also, that deafening silence you hear on Twitter is the sound of a bunch of celebrities playing dead to raise money for AIDS. New meme: celebrity zombie impersonator accounts! Get yours today! --Molly
If it's not a right angle, it's a wrong angle. That's exactly the ethos that has inspired the type of precise, structured and rigidly useful gadgetry that we highlight in today's episode.
Happy belated 4th! We're back from celebrating on Independence by blowing up a piece of it, and we spend the first half of today's episode recounting all the BBQ we ate yesterday. We're also bringing you results of the annual Nathan's hog dog eating contest and breaking news about one of our favorite shows on Comedy Central--and of course we wouldn't let a Monday go by without Tanging that Tune!
